Grand Haven ArtWalk is a celebration of art and artists of all ages, with art displayed in public and private spaces. The public views the art and votes for their favorites, with prizes awarded for the top vote-getters. The ArtWalk Youth Competition works in the same way, except the entries will be exhibited in one spot: Loutit District Library located at 407 Columbus Avenue, Grand Haven, Michigan 49417. If you think you’d like to be a part of this wonderful exhibit, start planning. Get creating. And spend the summer making great art! You can even submit a masterpiece you made at school! Registration begin September 17 at 12noon and closes September 18 at 9pm.
